BURKE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
OCTOBER 19, 2021
The Burke County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at 6 p.m. to receive input from citizens on the County returning $300,000 PARTF (Parks and Recreation Trust Fund) grant matching funds and $570,000 STBG-DA (Surface Transportation Block Grant – Direct Attributable) grant funds from the Western Piedmont Council of Governments. Misaligned timelines between the two (2) grants, inability to get verbal commitments on all of the right-of-way, and stringent Federal regulations are considerations for returning the grant funding intended for engineering portions of the Fonta Flora State Trail.
If reasonable ADA accommodations are needed to participate in the meeting, please contact the County Manager’s office at 828.764.9350 at least 48 hours prior to the meetings. In compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order and to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, limited socially distanced seating will be available on a first come, first served basis, attendees will be screened and asked to wear a face covering.
Notice given this 7th day of October 2021.
